I think this is the first post where I just can't seem to string the words together.  And it's not because I'm tired, or distracted, or depressed (which has sometimes been the case).  It's just that I cannot quite articulate the effect this song has on me.

I know that it makes my tear-ducts feel heavy, my nose feel swollen and the back of my throat feel like it is stuffed with a sock.  It twists my esophagus into a spiral.  Makes my heart beat irregularly.  And, strangely, makes it both harder and easier to breathe. 

The first time I heard this song (about two weeks ago) it felt like I had been struck.  I had the weirdest feeling...like, "Oh shit, what this strange, scratchy, girly voice is saying...well, she is hitting the nail on the head.  Are these words coming out of my iPod speakers, or out of my mouth?"  It sounds weird (hey, we're at post twenty-three, so what do I have to lose?), but it was like the voice was talking to me.  The words...this song felt like it was a part of me immediately.

Every time I listen to it, it's like I'm still trying to process this song...the strings...the way her voice catches in her throat at certain points...the way "girl" comes out like a growl after the first chorus...the repetition...I am head-over-heels.
